snapshot madness

Disclaimer:  I am not asking for help;  I am sharing my experiences.

Very strange (but non-reproducible) thing happened.  I have an os13 XO-1
system which I use as a data repository - always up; never rebooted.  I
noticed that its X-session was blank (and unresponsive) - I shut the
system down from the text console.  On reboot, I saw that the Journal
was chock full with many hundreds of "Snapshots" -- all of them blank.

It might have been that something got inadvertently placed on the
keyboard which kept both 'alt' and '1' depressed - but when I
experimented, that produced only a single snapshot.  If not external,
then it appears that the software must have run wild.
